Makers are always breaking things and creating things that most of us might not even think of. In this process of Making, Breaking, and Creating things, they tend to learn and explore. Believe it or not, this is how new ideas emerge, and these ideas are implemented in real-life scenarios—paving the path for Innovation!
Having a Maker Mindset is all about being creative, experimenting, and keeping an open-ended mindset while finding a solution to a problem. As we know, there is no single solution, and the ability to solve a problem will strengthen and flourish through a creative lens.
With the help of Maker’s Mindset, Students can work on projects alone or with others strengthening their ability to plan and work with others- which was possible because of critical thinking, collaboration, and communication, which is a given in the Maker Mindset.
Do you know that Maker Mindset is closely related to Growth Mindset?
Growth Mindset thinking enables students to learn from mistakes and failures. This learning attitude allows the students to learn new things and helps them embrace a “life-long learning” attitude through the trial and error process.
Nowadays, many organizations are coming up with creative learning programs that can inculcate the culture of making in students. One such program is The Innovation School by Maker’s Asylum, a Skill-building program built on the three pillars of Design Thinking, Rapid Prototyping & Frugal Innovation, which helps cultivate a Makers Mindset in the young talents.
